Pros: The appearance
Cons: visibility / blind spots
Advice: If you want a sports car, consider the Crossfire!The minute I drove it...I knew it would be mine. This car is awesome. I love attention and boy, do I ever get it with this baby! If you don't own a sports car, it takes a bit of getting used to. I already had a small car, so the size wasn't really a problem for me. But, if you are going from a mid-size or full-size, it could be disturbing. There is more storage in this one than my compact. I love the classy look and feel of this vehicle. While it is the sexiest vehicle out there, it still has a nostalgic charm to it. The drive is tight and the handling is superb. By all means, go drive one...you will know what I mean!
Pros: Tight Cornering
Cons: Cup Holder
Advice: Make sure you are comfortable in the car before buying.My first day in this car I drove 1000 miles from Boise ID, to Santa Fe, NM. After 16 hours of freeway, backroads, and some snow I fell in love with it, yet couldn't wait to get out. The car corners and brakes beautifully. The 215 HP engine was almost fast enough. Having never owned a true sports car before, I found the ride somewhat rough, especially over uneven pavement. The seat while supportive, was very firm. It could really use lumbar support. I discovered that if you use all three mirrors and don't try to look over your shoulder the blind spot goes away. All in all, I love driving this car to work everyday.
Pros: Dual tone leather.
Cons: The silver paint
Advice: See if the car fits your style of life. Yes there is not even a faux back seat like the Audi TT. But the car is a lot more masculine and equally powerfulA car that will put a grin on the face of any driver inside and the onlookers outside. Well worth the price considering the few produced each year. Truly a specialty car that won't be seen at every traffic light. Cupholder works well when you purchase the matching crossfire mug from their website.(Only for water, hehe). No doubt a car that excites people. Price can be bargained down. Just use Chrysler incentives to your advantage. I like the coupe hatchback/fastback design. It is large enough for a medium sized dog. Perfect function and fashion.
Pros: The body style.
Cons: Trunk space
Advice: Purchase it, it is worth the money.I love this car. The first time I test drove this it was on my vacation in California. I fell in love right away. The elegance of this wonderful sports car is just outstanding. But after one more test drive I purchased a Crossfire of my own. You drive down the freeway and believe me you will get looks. There have been alot of attention to this car. Just an Awesome ride.
Pros: The 240 watt stereo system with 6 speakers and the integrated antenna.
Cons: I didn't like the fact that there isn't a back seat.
Advice: If you like a real American sports carI felt the 215 horsepower right away as I pulled away from the showroom floor. I tested both models and I decided that the 5 speed automatic the best. All of the colors look awesome, especially the blue.
Cons: Six speed manual transmission.
Advice: Negotiate price. I have found dealerships more willing to bargain.Car accelerates well. Turns heads wherever I go. Brakes are great. Ride can get uncomfortable on roads which are in poor condition. Make sure that you test drive the six speed before buying. It is very difficult to shift when the car is cold. I fought with the transmission from December until May until the car warmed up. Dealer said that it was normal????
Pros: speed-sensitive spoiler, when it works.
Cons: super-wide doors, short warranty, small opening into the trunk-space.
Advice: don't buy it yet. it's already on recall. my spoiler has malfunctioned from day one. my windshield sprayer doesn't work. the clock advances on its own 3 min per day. i have to wait 15 days for a chip to arrive to fix these problems!looks fantastic. runs well. MASSIVE blindspot!
